The CBI's probe into the Ishrat Jahan case has found that IB's then joint director (Subsidiary Intelligence Bureau) Rajinder Kumar had allegedly personally supervised the interception and detention of one of the four deceased - Jishan Johar - in Ahmedabad along with a city crime branch (CB) officer.
According to the CBI's case charge sheet, the joint SIB-CB team had allegedly detained Johar in the last week of April 2004 with the help of two informants employed by Kumar and then assistant commissioner of police GL Singhal, who is among the seven CB officials named as accused in the charge sheet.
Johar was then confined at house number 164/165 in Gota Housing and was "put under audio-tap" by three junior SIB officers and under physical surveillance by a CB team.
The CBI, investigating Kumar's role in the encounter conspiracy, will file a supplementary chargesheet in a month.
Separate CB-SIB teams had picked up and detained the deceased Amjad Ali on May 26, 2004, around Ahmedabad, and Ishrat Jahan and Javed Shaikh alias Pranesh Pillai from a tollbooth in Vasad on June 12, 2004.
